    I Can’t Afford a Homebirth and Other Money Issues

    I Can’t Afford a Homebirth and Other Money Issues

    Here it is…my thoughts and experiences around money and energy in the world of birth. Whether you are a birthing woman, a doula or midwife, I hope you will take what resonates with you and leave the rest. The way “out” of the current confusing conversation around birth/midwifery care happens when we have these conversations.

    Take a listen to my internal dialogue about this topic!

    Waterbirth? Yay or Nay?

    Maryn and Margo chat together on this episode about all things waterbirth; why people might choose it, why they might choose it, what we notice as midwives and how we come back to the same belief each and every time…choose what is best for you!

    Birth: the Greatest Opportunity For a Guy to Be a Man

    Birth: the Greatest Opportunity For a Guy to Be a Man

    This episode isn’t me blabbing about birth from my perspective. Instead, I handed the mic over to my husband Jason, and good friend Nathan, so that they could talk about birth in the way that only 2 guys (with some very varied and unique birth experiences!) could. Share this podcast chat with the men in your life and see what they think!

    Mothering #2: “Schooling” and Our Kids

    Mothering #2: “Schooling” and Our Kids

    “When you take the free will out of education, that turns it into schooling.”-John Taylor Gatto

    Come with me on this ramble as I share my thoughts on formal education, my own story and what my hopes are for my own children. This is a big and touchy topic but since it relates so much to my birth philosophy, I hope it brings you to questioning and exploring on your own. Homeschool, unschool, public school, who cares! What do we REALLY dream for our children?

    A Birth At the Ashram

    A Birth At the Ashram

    Listen in on my chat with Eve; an amazing young woman who recently birthed her first baby, Sofiah, in her complete power!

    I was honored to meet Eve just weeks before her birth, and just as honored to attend her birth at the beautiful Divine Grace Ashram in Arizona on gorgeous, sacred land in the company of very special people.

    We jump right in with the story of Eve’s pregnancy which was full of intuition and surrender. I really enjoyed getting to know Eve at a deeper level by witnessing her share her story. Listen in on this remarkable story of how Spirit, and trust, always leads us back home.

The best pregnancy, birth and postpartum podcast

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a long time now, it’s one of my absolute favourites. I’m a midwife myself and it helps to re inspire me to serve my community and also reignite the passion in me. Also amazing to prepare my body and mind for my own birth journey. If you only listen to one podcast on this subject let it be this one.

Amazing Podcast for all Women

Thankyou Meryn and all guests who have been on the Taking Back Birth Podcast.

I discovered this podcast a month ago, when gearing up to begin studying Midwifery, and have been listening so happily on my (now long) daily walks.

Full of information, research, personal experience and musings this podcast is a must for any woman or person involved in Birth Work, or looking to have their own children. Thank you for your great service to the worldwide Birth community. Gracias! Kelsey

I like the real nature of these podcasts that create a understanding of women in birth. Its a good space to listen to different areas, I especially loved listening to podcasts on self care. Great for birth workers
